FAQ – Questions about admissions and advanced standing
Q2.1 I am interested in the programmes of HKU and would like to know more. Which unit should I contact?
For matters related to admission, please visit the website of our Admissions Office at https://admissions.hku.hk/. Their FAQ section is very useful too: https://admissions.hku.hk/faqs.
Q2.2 What is advanced standing? Am I eligible to apply for it?
Advanced standings are the credits granted to eligible non-JUPAS entrants in recognition of their studies completed successfully elsewhere before admission to HKU (e.g. IB, GCE A-level, community college, overseas university). You are not required to make up these “advanced credits” during your course of study at HKU so this might enable you to shorten your overall study period. However, no further advanced standing will be granted after admission to the programme or the deadline stipulated by the Faculty. For enquiry and application, please contact your Faculty Office.
